Section 38-296 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, entitled “Limitation upon filing for election by incumbent of elective office” states:
- Except during the final year of the term being served, no incumbent of a salaried elective office, whether holding by election or appointment, may offer himself for nomination or election to any salaried local, state or federal office.
- An incumbent of a salaried elected office shall be deemed to have offered himself for nomination or election to a salaried local, state or federal office on the filing of a nomination paper pursuant to section 16-311, subsection A. An incumbent of a salaried elected office is not deemed to have offered himself for nomination or election to an office by making a formal declaration of candidacy for the office.”
- Note: Changes passed by the legislature in 2013 allow elected officials to publicly announce their candidacy for another office. Previously, they had to hide their intentions from voters, as they would have had to resign upon formally announcing candidacy for a different office. Now they do not have to resign their current office unless they file formal nominating papers and are not in their final year of office. The text above reflects these changes.

WE SHOULD CALL OUR LOCAL PAPERS AND TELL THEM THAT IN OUR OPINION THEIR COVERAGE OF SURPRISE IS POOR IF NOT NONE EXISTING.

City of Surprise News
It is my intention to inform the citizens of Surprise of current events, decisions made by the Surprise City Council and the happenings within our city government.
Council members should expand their “political outreach” by starting dialogues with federal and state lawmakers in Arizona.
The city council workshop of surprise, what a difference, members can make. In previous work shops the discussions were between concerned council members and their constituents, nothing like that anymore. The other night’s workshop had agendas like a council meeting and you are kept quiet, council members hardly talked.
